<< If I recall correctly, the new edition will be referred to as BDAG (not 
to quibble, but most people nutty enough to study Greek also care about 
getting their abbreviations right).  At least, that's the way Prof. Danker 
refers to it. >>

What a hoot! Obviously, I had overlooked that. Although, now that you've 
mentioned it, one might recall that in Danker's "Multipurpose Tools" he 
noted that BAAR (the German edition by Baurer, Aland & Aland, and Viktor 
Reichmann) was, by Rykle Borger, referred to as BRAA, in favor of 
Reichmann's vast input. <g> I guess the acronym BDAG has been coined on the 
same principle.
